I bought this beeswax to make candles and the 1lb bag smelled synthetic. After conferring with customer service, I was told it was 100% beeswax, no blend. I bought a 5 lb bag, the smell was just the same. I figured I'd make a batch of candles and have someone who doesnt live with me smell them. They called it. It smells like new tires. Yeah, not what beeswax candles should smell like, at all. Returning all the white wax unfortunately will have to pay shipping on the return too.

I used the yellow beeswax for lip balm. I have made really good lip balms from it. It has the strong smell, so you really have to add in essential oil of choice. No side effects noted yet. I read that it is bath and body safe.

I recently purchased the yellow 1lb. bag and could smell it through the plastic bag it came in and the bag it was mailed in. I don't mind the smell when the beeswax is in its pellet form but when I diluted it with coconut oil and other ingredients to make homemade deodorant the scent became strange, difficult to describe but still bearable and easily masked with CS's scents. I will continue using this wax because of the high melting point but I would recommend buying scents or essential oils when making cosmetics or mixing it to dilute it. I don't know if the beeswax is bath/body safe, but would like to know. Still I experimented and haven't had any adverse reactions.

I just started making beeswax candles, so I have ordered wax from a few different sources to see which one I like the best. This one had the best smell out of all of them. It is a light, sweet smell. I will be ordering more when I use up the rest of what I have!

After reading the negative revues, I was careful to use with extremely low heat. I absolutely love this wax!!! It has a light honey scent, easy to measure and melts quickly. My products are smoother and my customers love them. I will only use this was from now on!

wow... the smoke smell is unbearable, disgusting, the product is unusable. I've heard of beeswax smelling like smoke before (which makes me believe the bees are not being treated kindly - but what do I know, I'm not a beekeeper), but this is an unacceptable product to sell especially for candles that are meant to smell lovely or in the least, not be repulsive. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the 3 remaining pounds... does anyone have suggestions? I've already wasted two pounds trying to make real bayberry candles mixed with beeswax - smelled like my dad's cigarette smoke filled basement. just bad!!!!!!!! it seems like not all of CS's beeswax stinks like this, but I wish I'd known it was possible, I would have never bought it.

I ordered the 1 lb. bad of beeswax and am very pleased with it. My order was processed and shipped quickly. I am a newbie to candle making and to using beeswax but it smells sweet/honey- like I have experienced before with beeswax. The customer service has been great with answering my newbie questions. I plan to order more beeswax in the future, probably a larger bag.

For balance and fairness, I'd like to say that I found no fragrance issues with the yellow beeswax purchased from Candlescience. I'm not an expert on beeswax, but it smelled like beeswax to me. Not detectable through the closed bag, certainly! And the price was the best I've found online or in stores. Different strokes, I guess. Be your own judge, it's a small investment to see for yourself.

I love all the other products I received, but the beeswax is gross. I wanted to use it in lotions and lip balms and candles but I don't think I will be able to. This doesn't have the light honey smell associated with beeswax. It has a very strong processed stench. I have the bag closed, sitting in the dining room and I can still smell it. Very disappointed!
